New Training! Wrightslaw Program: All About IEPs
In 2009, Wrightslaw did 27 Special Ed Law & Advocacy Training Programs all over the country.
In November 2009, a new Wrightslaw program was introduced. All About IEPs (one day, 5 hours) focuses on the legal requirements for IEPs and how to develop SMART IEPs.
Participants learn how the law about IEPs changed, the legal requirements for IEPs in IDEA 2004 and federal regulations, and significant legal cases about IEPs.
In All About IEPs, you learn how to draft SMART IEPs that are Specific, Measurable, use Action Words, are Realistic, and Time specific. You will also learn how to use an effective team approach in crafting legally sufficient IEPs.
This first All bout IEPs program was held in Jan, and more are scheduled in 2010. Find out how to bring a Wrightslaw program to your community or find a program & register to attend.
